Garden State sales delayed again

New Jersey was planning to launch adult-use sales within weeks, but plans have been delayed, reports NJ.com.

The details

  • Eight medical dispensaries were going to be permitted to sell adult-use cannabis in April, but that has been put on hold for now
  • A total of 68 cultivators and manufacturers have been conditionally licensed, but operations won’t begin until fall of 2022 at the earliest
  • The problem? There isn’t enough cannabis to supply both the adult-use and medical markets
